Types of grants
Good Neighbor grant [preview form]
- For grant request $500 or less
A Good Neighbor grant is a donation to a non-profit organization with a value of $500 or less. The organization being funded must be a 501c3 and its cause aligned to our mission. If a non-profit organization applies directly for a goodwill donation, they will highlight the impact of the grant on the Upper Valley community. Our preference is for Good Neighbor grants to have a connection to a Hypertherm volunteer. If an Associate is requesting a Good Neighbor donation on behalf of the nonprofit, they will have demonstrated a personal investment of time to the organizations seeking funds.
- Completed W-9 is required [download a blank W-9 form].
- Good Neighbor grants will be reviewed the month following the submission.
HOPE Foundation full grant [preview form]
- For requests greater than $500
- Full application grants are reviewed in March, June, September and December. Please submit your grant by February, May, August or November of the quarter you need to have your grant reviewed. We strive to review your grant in a timely manner and may have follow up questions. Therefore, we need to adhere to a strict review schedule and will not be able to accommodate last minute requests.
If your request is approved, please be prepared to submit your measurable outcomes (activities, progress, challenges, and learnings) within the time frame documented in the form. See examples below.
